: with germany and britain? president obama said the syria is not just a problem of the united states, but for the entire world. it is difficult for the united states to explain how it is staying on the sidelines and providing humanitarian support when there is a crisis of this magnitude going on. it will be increasingly more difficult to stay on the sidelines with the europeans pushing for more. there has arikat, been discussion as to what the chemical weapons were used in science syria. in a news over the last 48 hours -- used inside syria. last 48 hours?he hasstate department no evidence to show that the syrian government or the opposition -- there have been opposition -- accusations on both sides about using chemical weapons. there has been no evidence of that. the united nations is leading an effort to determine whether chemical weapons have been used. there are all kinds of technical things involved. they need to conduct these experts to determine if it is by a examination or looking at injuries to determine whether chemical weapons have been used. we have been told by people in
: we watched the trip and the meetings of the president and the new secretary of state, senator kerry, former senator kerry. what progress did we make? >> well, you know, my view is that obama went because he had a problem n. in the first administration, he couldn't figure out whether he wanted to pressure netanyahu or pannedder to him? now he has clearly made a decision to try to create a functional partnership. i think that's really important because as things stand now the, if barack obama doesn't want to be the guy on whose watch iran gets the nuclear weapon or the two-state solution expire, he is going to have to find a way to deal effectively and work cooperatively with the new government and with the prime minister. >> jamie: what about the secretary of state? >> you know, it's been my view from the very beginning that barack obama's the most controlling foreign policy president since richard nixon. hillary clinton was given very true truly cons quential issues to manage. kerry may be in a better situation because it's legacy time and obama is trying to figure out what do todo

and thousands of retreats but this image or tweet got a retweet from the president of the united states, barack obama. we need do something about guns in this country. on o thursday, it was announced that dianne feinstein's assault weapons ban would be dropped. we learned it didn't matter that the majority of americans support the ban. the proposal couldn't make it past the u.s. senate. senate majority leader reid said he doesn't have the votes. didn't have the republican votes. he didn't have the democratic votes and no amount of public shaming could change that fact. >> quite honestly, i'm really aashamed to see that congress doesn't have the guts to stand up, make a change and put a ban on these type of weapons and universal background checks. >> with the assault weapons ban out of picture for the time being, the focus is now on those universal background checks. the overwhelming majority of americans are for universal background checks. 88% of voters say they support these checks according to the latest polling from quinnipiac. as for gun owners, 85% of gun owners support background checks.
the recession bottom in june 2009, this is how team obama measures it, federal, state, and local jobs have fallen 740,000. and i'm sorry for that. however, private sector jobs have increased 5.2 million over the exact same period, way more, making up for the slack. so once again, i argue spending cuts are pro growth. smaller government is good for the private economy. that is the true engine of economic growth. let's talk to keith and jimmy. i'm sorry, keith, the private sector jobs have outspread the public sector jobs by a huge ratio. >> are you saying there's growth now? that's good. >> i have continued to say that. >> "the wall street journal" said it would be 7.1% if it weren't for the government job cuts. government job cuts means there are fewer people who can pay money and can fail to contribute to the economy. that's a good thing, i think. >> we don't want just jobs. government can create a bunch of jobs and have people walking around parks picking up wrappers. what you want is value added economically sustainable jobs that are aren't based on taxpayer money, and we're creating re

care mandate, especially for the states, in place? >> well, the stakes here are enormous. this is going to be president obama's legacy, whether it's good or bad. the fact that obama care has actually survived to make it this long is surprising. of course, survived the supreme court challenge and the 2012 election. but implementing is going to be tricky. there are a lot of issues. immigration reform is one issue. will immigrants who get their green card be allowed on the rolls of health care. also, employers struggling to find out what is the minimum threshold, what do they have to cover. president obama made the promise if you don't want to change your health care you don't have to. some critics say that's not going to bear out to be true. >> one critical deadline is october 1st when the states have to have their exchanges up and running. what are the chances of making the deadline and what if we don't? >> i think some of those deadlines are probably going to be pushed back. remember, a lot of these states held off on implementation under after the 2012 election. the obama administratio
remind the public that barack obama has stated done enacted 18 tax breaks for small business and more are on their way. business,tion big which is so programmed that many do not pay any taxes. there are tens of millions of people in this country if they paid $1 of federal income tax would have paid more dollars into the u.s. treasury than general electric, honeywell, pepco, pacific gas and electric who have made billions of dollars in profit but did not pay one dollar. there should be a taxpayer appreciation day frawley belts that taxpayers have been required because they have not organized and become powerful. i wrote 100 of them years ago. a taxpayerannounce appreciation day on april 15?" they were not been used. host: ralph nader is the author of "the seventeen solutions, bold ideas for our american future." thank you for joining us. we will look at how four houses. faye taxman is our guest. john kerry is in afghanistan and meeting with hamid karzai and talking about continued u.s. assistance to the country. there has been concern that hamid karzai may be jeopardized the the war wi
hillary clinton was doing. >> and barack obama. that was the administration's stated goal. the real answer is that the middle east, regardless of whether the united states achieves energy independence any time soon, the middle east is a geopolitical center that is not easy to pivot away from. i think that daunting list of challenges that you just ran over suggests why that is. i also think if you look at what senator-turned-secretary kerry's agenda is, you get the sense of this is still very much a political figure. he spent 29 years in the senate which prizes a kind of face-to-face diplomacy, if you will, the handshake, the look 'em in the eye. that was a mission that then senator kerry often undertook for barack obama when he was the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. he went to afghanistan. he met with karzai. i think this is a somewhat familiar role for him. it's very different, by the way, than the way that hillary clinton used her time and credibility in the job. >> ifill: whether it's syria or what we just saw in afghanistan or whether it's worrying about the red li

that just as israel's right to exist cannot be denied, neither can palestine's. the united states does not accept the legitimacy of continued israeli settlements. it is time for these settlements to stop. >> president obama's relationship with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu soured over the course of the four years. open disagreements over those israeli settlements and borders. >> we believe the borders of israel and palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swats. >> my israel is prepared to make generous compromises for peace, it cannot go back to the 1967 lines. because these lines are indefensible. >> netanyahu lectured the president in the oval office at that event. the low point of their personal relationship. the erosion of trust between the two leaders was just one in a series of events which derailed the president's quest for first term peace. in the arab spring a major disruption as israel lost its most important arab ally, egyptian president hosni mubarak. most effective player in getting palestinians to the table. clashes between israel and
so. and we must support president obama and senator finestien comprehensive effort to reform the gun laws, i support state and federal effort to keep the weapons off of our streets and out of our homes. i have directed our city agencies and law enforcement officials to move towards plans of action, to prioritize and create solutions that impact policy changes and take aggressive actions against the moment egregious types of gun violence and we are working hard and making more plans for more deeper, more wider gun buy back programs and events that will take place later this year. but no single mayor can stop gun violence alone. if we work together, as a city, as a community, as a region, as a state, and now, as importantly as a nation, if we work together as a nation, we can make real impact. forget the polls. forget the politics. forget the threats of this lobbying group or that lobbying group. we are doing what is necessary and what is the right thing to do. and we are not going to make any excuses for why we can't get it done. it is time to take a stand and it is time to stand for
maimed or crippled by bush's war. in 2002 before the war began, a young state senator named barack obama came out to oppose the invasion of iraq. at a time when few politicians on the left were showing that kind of courage. when he was running for president a few years later, he promised to end the iraq war, and in 2011, he did. >> as president, i want us to fight on the right battlefield. and what that means is getting out of iraq. >> the long war in iraq will come to an end by the end of this year. across america, our servicemen and women will be reunited with their families. today, i can say that our troops in iraq will definitely be home for the holidays. >> our troops are home. the iraq war is over. but today too many republicans haven't learned the lessons of this tragedy. dick cheney himself says he has no regrets. >> it is a wartime situation. it was more important to be successful than it was to be loved. if i had to do it over again, i would do it in a minute. >> and here's what a new republican congressman, a veteran considered a rising star in the party, said just last week.
and also the historical basis on which the state of israel does exist. a very important statement from president obama, once again, setting the tone for what he hopes and what his intention is, to create a warmer relationship, warmer understanding with the israeli leader and the new government that has been sworn in only a few days ago. obamast netanyahu and made a point of saying we have a vision of the middle east which has freedom, prosperity, and piece. we seek peace with our palestinian neighbors. but actually the whole prospect of further negotiations between israel and the palestinians, that is very much being doubted, very low expectations on that front. >> certainly, it has been made very clear that president obama is not bringing any new initiatives, not bringing any new demands or any ideas to re- spark what has been a completely dormant peace process for much of obama's first term. but one must make the point here that while this is about repairing the relationship, the issue of the peace process will be discussed but not in as great a detail, certainly on a former general
, president obama called the use of chemical weapons in syria a red line. that the united states would have to act in some say militarily if syria starts moving around those chemical weapons. so our question, is it time for the united states to intervene in syria? jason? >> i don't know if we can afford to intervene at this point seeing how the sequester is going to be limiting our military capacity in the next couple of weeks and next couple of months. no. i think it was nice rhetoric by barack obama, but we've much more important things to be looking at. we have to make sure iran doesn't get a nuclear weapon, we have to make sure the two-state solution doesn't disappear in israel. whether or not the syrian government in the beginning of their civil war was using chemical weapons doesn't need to be a priority right now. >> for once i agree with the president, laying the marker down. the united states of america has never sat on the sidelines when people have created this type of chaos against their own people so i think certainly senator mccain and senator graham along with the president h

states and president obama. so we're going to be watching this. we know a tree was planted at president shimon peres' home, which our president hoped would blossom and grow and be a long standing trip to a warm relationship between the two. this is something that will have a news conference at 2:05 p.m. these two gentlemen, these leaders will go into some closed bilateral talks, i believe dinner will be served. about that hour over there in israel. and we will have a news conference after which we will cover that live at 2:05 p.m. eastern time. >>> we do have some breaking news out of colorado that we're tracking for you. we're giving you right now a bird's eye view over that city. that's where a massive man hunt is underway for a man suspected of shooting and killing of the state department of corrections. all the houses close to the home of this man, prison chief tom clements, he was gunned down when he answered his front door last night. now, all this is unfolding the very same day that the state's governor is due to sign a new set of gun control laws. just moments ago, the governor

obama rejected that violence and said he was committed to a two-state solution in the future and he was very specific about what the u.s. wants to see. >> we seek an independent, viable and contiguous palestinian state as the homeland of the palestinian people alongside the jewish state of israel, two nations enjoying self determination, security and peace. >> nbc's chuck todd joins me now from ramallah. chuck, hello. >> reporter: well, good morning, chris. let me just tell you the most remarkable thing about this morning's events between the president and abbas is the fact that the president is openly admitting that he is simply trying to get the two sides to sit down and talk rather -- so there's negotiations to begin the negotiations. you can tell there's a little bit of frustration with the obama delegation in that that's the stage that we're at, but that is the stage that we're at. the issue of settlements, which is something the president dodged yesterday with netanyahu, he couldn't quite dodge it today but, boy, did he tap dance around it. take a listen. >> we do not consider
